Default toxic family

it's my gramma's birthday today. we're all supposed to hang out with her. i don't want to because she is generally a terrible person to be around, putting down everyone in our family, complaining constantly, calling waiters "boy".

A big portion of American culture is toxic. Like malignant arrogance and willful ignorance or something. This isn't a country to be proud of

at least you're not the sort of person who complains about their family but is the exact same way. gotta nip that shit in the bud and keep on your toes or you'll wake up one morning to find yourself a monstrous vermin.

my parents grandma and i all live in colorado now. gramma was getting old and the family collectively made the decision to move her out here into a senior living place. my mom's brother is still in florida

it's been hard on everyone involved, especially my mom who has had to endure this shit since she was born. mom was never skinny enough, or pretty enough and gramma always reminds her of this. i say that in the present tense because it still happens. points out how my mom has always had a weight problem. she pits people against each other by talking shit behind their backs.

Sounds like me with a lot of relatives. As if the pressure of someone "caring" about you will help with the "weight problem" asdfghjkl

"I'm just concerned about you" is the kind of thing I'm thinking of. Like maybe do it once and then let them be

A "weight problem" isn't like a drinking problem, which as we've seen can hurt others a lot. It isn't like a drug problem, which is like drinking. Gambling, etc. weight is some way that someone can kill themselves and only themselves a little faster. This is a problem more meaningful on a large scale (hyuck) but concern trolls and family members that make this their problem are a real problem

a "weight problem" can hurt and effect others, too, just like "depression". "depression" isn't a "drug" or "drinking" problem either.

Let's rank the problems in order of how much they are bad and are problems

Doesn't seem like such an ordeal to me. You only need to be nice to her long enough to have her declare you the sole beneficiary of her estate in her will in a state of Alzheimer's-induced delirium.
